Re: Andy's 2011 Australian Summer

Andy I love you, but I feel like going down to Melbourne and spanking you with one of your rackets right now.

And you wouldn't enjoy it.

Re: Andy's 2011 Australian Summer

I will take it. He should have enough in the tank from week 1 for the dropped set not to matter. Dolgo is a handful. Really happy he is in the sfs after my doom predictions. I hope he wins it but he is supposed to lose to nadal so it wouldn't be a terrible loss. Still, Andy win it anyway

Re: Andy's 2011 Australian Summer

Well well well maybe lady luck is finally on Murrays side avoiding Soderling was massive, avoiding Nadal even more massive.

Not underestimating Ferrer cos he aint exactly Andy's favorite oppeanent, but on hard Andy should have it covered, although Im not counting my chickens just yet.

Go Andy!

Re: Andy's 2011 Australian Summer

I'm not going to get too over excited I'll wait and see how he does in his semi before making any judgment about who/how he will play in the final

Of course I dream that he wins but bracing myself for the worst.

Re: Andy's 2011 Australian Summer

No - I got too excited last year and look how that turned out.

I wouldn't even dream of looking past Ferrer here.

Re: Andy's 2011 Australian Summer

Just to be safe I think I'll start to think Ferrer is going to beat him If he wins great, but if he loses then I won't be as disappointed.

Re: Andy's 2011 Australian Summer

Actually, if Andy and Pics both played the way the played today, Pics has a huge chance against him. Trying not to think about it!

Andy won't play that way against Pics - he played the junk route against Dolgo because he really didn't have much choice, trying to out-power and out-aggressive Delpo would have been a really bad idea. Tsonga and Soderling tried that and they're already back in Europe planning their spring.

No, Andy will play the right way against David but I don't expect an easy match at all, it's a match Andy should win but could lose. He beat David 62 62 at the WTFs but I refuse to take much comfort in that

Re: Andy's 2011 Australian Summer

No doubt the moronic British press will be loading the pressure on Andy now Federes out

I just hope that he can remain focused on his SF match and that he dosen't choke under the pressure of it all.

Good luck Andy!!!!!!!xxxxxxxxxxxx

Go Andy!

Re: Andy's 2011 Australian Summer

This makes not a jot of difference.

He needs to beat Ferrer first and then worry about what he can do against Djokovic. I don't think either is an easy match at all.

Re: Andy's 2011 Australian Summer

Problem with Pics is whilst I don't think he will beat Andy, he's capable of taking him to 4-5 hours and a loooooooong match, leaving him a bit goosed for Nole.

Re: Andy's 2011 Australian Summer

I agree Djokovic for my money has been the best player consistently over past 2 weeks, he should be favourite no matter who comes through the other semi.

But you know those dumb assess in the press will be putting the pressure on Murray now. They are thick if they think Djokovic isnt the favorite for the title seeing as he's the only one in the final and he only one with a GS to his name.

Go Andy!

Re: Andy's 2011 Australian Summer

*shrug*

Well Andy will need to step up then and win comfortably - he's got the tools - if he doesn't, then it's really his own problem. If Djokovic can take down Federer in straight sets, Andy should be able to do the same to Pics. He's dropped 1 set this tournament and spent not much over 10 hours on court to this point, he should have it in the tank even if Pics extends him a bit.

Andy has to show what he's made of here, the stakes just got higher, he doesn't have the "lost to the GOAT" argument anymore if he makes the final and then doesn't perform.
